Loreto College’s Choirs, under the baton of Choirmaster Mr Howard Gillespie and assisted by Mrs Annie Sharkey, have had an excellent start to the competition season, winning awards at the annual Ballymena Music Festival.

The Loreto Year 11 vocal ensemble took first place in its class, performing a memorable medley of songs from Les Miserables, for which they had developed accompanying choreography themselves, winning high praise from the adjudicators. Meanwhile the Loreto Junior Choir, also impressed the festival adjudicators, taking second place in its class.

The choir members were delighted with their success as well as being excited at the prospect of performing in a programme of other concerts and competitions in the coming months. The students and their teachers were congratulated by Loreto College Principal Mr Michael James on their dedication, teamwork and enthusiasm throughout their many months of hard work and rehearsals.
